right here in the united states. she joins us live tonight from bahrain. melissa, great to see you, safe and sound. you spent the night on the uss enterprise, the crown jewel of the navy's fifth fleet. stationed in bahrain where the iran threatened to shut down. this is a vessel with tremendous amount of history. tell us about it. >> oh, absolutely. it has been on the water for 51 years. it was parked off cuba during the cuban missile crisis. right now it is patrolling the arabian sea as you said, keeping the strait of hormuz open. rear admiral walter carter talked to us exclusive and we asked him how leaders in the area feel about iran's threat to shut down the strait of hormuz and here's what he had to say. >> like the entire global economy. they're very concerned about that and our job here is to make sure that freedom of navigation occurs through that very critical strait. it is well-known the amount of trade and commerce that goes through there. so just take a look what goes through there. liquified natural gas, huge product that comes out of the country of qatar. oil products impor

in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states, countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian and yet we do not plan blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. >> watched that and was ripping my hair out. do we really think that was about the movie. here he is legitimatizing that point of view saying all this had to do with the movie. first of all do you believe that the attacks on the ambassador were -- >> president obama were a law professor he would describe that as a red herring that is totally irrelevant concern that takes the obama administration kind of off the hook for how they missed the ba on this. this was a planned attack. melissa: right. >> he had u.n. ambassador on a week and a half ago saying this was spontaneous attack that is ridiculous statement. these were grenades that were propelled in a massive way. these were massive arms. people don't bring these things to, to spontaneous demonstrations. now all this evidence is coming out that the ambassador himself had, had a dia
, the united states will stand along with our allies and put a time frame, a time limit on this and really force iranian compliance with the iaea regulations or the consequences would be really, detrimental for iran and the economy and perhaps take a military course. melissa: yeah, it feels like we're not having impact. that's why we're talking about all these things tonight. thank you very much ambassador, for coming on. >> thank you very much. melissa: hoards of demonstrators violently taking to the streets of greece and spain to protest new austerity measures. governments are trying to take one step forward to solve the continent's debt crisis but some citizens seemed determine to take two steps back. with the u.s. trying to solve its own looming debt crisis could we see this kind of turmoil break out here? steve moore from "the wall street journal" joins me with more on this. we watch these protests going on in the streets and the first thing on my mind is that it seems like things are getting worse instead of better across europe and i thought that we had sort of solved, at least part
that israel is in a position whereby no red line by the international community, by the united states, israel may have to do what it has to do and then make the phone calls. melissa: yeah. we were all sort of stunned in the newsroom and stood up and looked at this because he is holding up this giant whiteboard to make his point. what do you think the reaction will be now? >> well the reaction of course on behalf of the iranian regime and their allies, that would be the syrian regime, hezbollah in lebanon, some politicians in iraq, hamas maybe, they could attack the prime minister of israel and accuse him of escalation. reality others in the region, such as saudies, kuwaities, threatened by the iranians have someone speaking on their behalf but not a arab leader, the leader of israel. melissa: i was in the middle east recently and leaders are definitely nervous. they see this as almost an inevitable conclusion at this point. do you think 70% to a bomb is about where they are? do you think it is even further than that? >> i think iranians are working on two tracks. one is slowly gradually to ge
one. number two the president needs to talk about the relationship between the united states and israel. when he says that israel, that the united states always has their back on all issues what does that specifically mean? i think, three, the president owes it to the people of this country to know what his foreign policy is. the president in 2008 laid out a foreign policy that he would hit reset button with russia. i believe that has failed. melissa: yeah. >> he said he would have negotiations with iran. that has clearly failed. iran is closer to nuclear weapon, melissa, than ever before. he has said that the arab world would have a much better relationship because he is the president. that's not the case when you have these sort of concerted organized abuses going on. melissa: right. start with the first one, saying the war on terror is still ongoing. do you think that it is realistic that he would do that give that he sort of spiked the football with the death of osama bin laden saying that it was almost over? do you think that he is really going to acknowledge that is sti
, in the united states? plus the corporation is falling behind because their tax rates are going up. their businesses will go away. they will lose competitiveness. people will move, as you have just said. this is a disaster. there are things you can't see. you know, so let's say you're a surgeon and you don't want to pay 75% tax rate. so what you do, you cancel surgeries and go paint your own house, which takes away business from the painter. and the whole economy becomes inefficient. that is why, this is going to be a disaster for france. the whole world learned these kind of tax rates are highly unproductive. melissa: i don't know. they will have to watch closely to really learn that lesson because i'm not sure everybody takes that away. one of the biggest points whenever you do something like this it never brings in revenue they think it will going to. they think this will recoup 30 billion euro or $39 billion and help close the deficit next year. if you look at example. this was tried in oregon in 2010. it didn't bring the revenue they thought. tried the same experiment in illin
and the united states. work with those people and have the keystone pipeline and, but, the missing link, in this whole thing is that we've never had an energy plan in america. melissa: you are right about that. >> we have no energy plan. melissa: you're right about all that. that is great setup because we have the ceo transcanada coming up. boone pickens thanks for coming on the show tonight. we really appreciate your time. >> sure. melissa: transcanada submit as new route for the keystone xl pipeline. can the plan avoid getting quashed by the white house? boone talked about how much we need this. i will ask transcanada's ceo in a first on fox interview coming up next. >>> plus, ecb mario draghi sends bulls on a tear. look at that. is his debt crisis fix a short term high for investors? piles of money printed by the e.u. coming up. ♪ .

diplomats in the region is to represent the united states, to advance business and security interests. they will be out there doing that, regardless of the level of threat. they will just be more careful. melissa: we had a guest on yesterday saying international companies will pull back, having their people out in regions where they are receiving these threats. it seems like it is the smart thing to do. now you have al qaeda saying that they are focusing on threatening companies internationally as well and their personnel. do you think this poses a threat to international business, and in fact the global economy? >> first of all, not to the global economy. in the terms of american business interests, each company must, based upon its own legal and insurance policies, take care with its own employees, particularly when there are threats out there like that. each company has its own polly, melissa. again, i do not think this will have to long-term, significant impact we can measure on either the american business posture in the middle east or on the global economy. melissa: you are some
countries ended up with. they keep on running debt and our dollar gets devaluated. the u.s., the united states gets deevaluated. this is wrong. they have got to bring up what are we going to do, what is your administration going to do? but more important, i haven't heard anything new. what are going to do to lower the deficit? what will you do to create more jobs? what will you do to be more accountable for that? if they don't mention that, america becomes like europe and none of us in america want that. none of us want that. melissa: from the reports i've been hearing about the democratic national convention and speech i'm watching they're embracing their spendingselves. they feel very good about this. you heard neil cavuto talk about this. spending makes sense. this is what you do as a government. isn't that your impression being there? >> well, priority, i love you out there, okay. that is a priority. but what is very important that we love each other as this, they're not addressing it. america that is very important. we don't want to go bankrupt. if bankrupt happens, there is less s
consistency and the greatest growth engine in this united states is small business. melissa: yeah. >> it is small business. so what we need to do is to empower the small businesses so that they will --. melissa: feel confident, expand, hire people. they have to feel like demand out there. >> exactly. melissa: it is all interconnect the. i don't think we'll solve the problem tonight. let's talk about the market. we saw a rally yesterday on the ba of easy money out of europe. today came to the halt because of a jobs report. was that it? the rally we saw yesterday? >> i think we have more growth. long term i'm on his tick for long term. short term you will have the issues with the job market, with china, with the e! you. the -- e.u. next week. qe3 will happen and they're waiting to see, show me the money. melissa: you think there will do something next week? there is a big debate whether or not though wait until after the election. >> they move now it makes it look like we're in real trouble and the fed is take be action and maybe isn't a vote of confidence for the president? >> yeah
